I want to be alone.

Kay, So in my last post I mentioned that I had a job at Seton Keogh. Well I got the location right, Just not the description. I'm the receptionist. The gatekeeper if you will. I answer the phones and let people in the building. The power! The Chances to Screw up! So far so good though. There are a couple of people that I know I transfered to the wrong place, but not too many. Maybe 5 or six. A day.
Speaking of Screw ups, Today is Halloween. Yay! It's a great holiday. Lots of candy and little kids, a lethal combination. This Halloween, I'm spending Halloween home alone. My parents are on a trip celebrating their 25th wedding anniversary and my sibling are of course out at school. So decorations and more importantly candy provisions are up to me. Great! I would now like you, dear reader, to take note of the time of this blog. I am out of candy. I bought 4 Bags of candy. I had no idea that there were that many little kids in this neighborhood. I had a sneaking suspicion, but the last four years have changed the area to mostly young childless couples and middle-age childless couples to young families. So I was unprepared. Next year... I hope to not be living here, But i will still be better prepared.
Anyway, Happy Halloween!

We haven't located us yet.

So Last night I was going to go to see a play and go visit Fencers at the Fence-a-thon. Instead, I went to see Darjeeling Limited with my brother and parents and did not go see the Fencers. Not seeing people sucked, but the movie did not. The only other movie I have ever seen by Wes Anderson was Life Aquatic, which i really didn't like, but this was really cute. The story is interesting and i liked the characters by the end, despite the fact that i wasn't really rooting for them in the beginning. I actually was more inclined to dislike them at the beginning. The thing with this movie is it's not funny. There are moments when it makes you chuckle, but it is amusing. I had happened to see the short film that is supposed to be a prequel to it earlier in the week so I had a little more background than my family, but they still enjoyed it. So go see it.

EDIT: I wrote this a while ago, I just never posted it. So here it is.

They Call me MR. Tibbs!

So My insanity has come to an end and I am employed, I think. I'm 85-90% sure that the job is mine. I have a meeting on Tuesday that is either an interview or orientation. But since the job starts on the 26th I think they are kind of done looking. By the way, this is a teaching Job. I'm going to a long term sub for a teacher who is having surgery on the 26th and I'm going to work for the next 4 to 6 weeks after that. Which means I will be employed around, but not actually have to work on, Thanksgiving. Yay! I'm working at Seton Keogh High School, where my Aunt teaches Religion and my Cousin is a junior. And I have no idea what I'm Teaching, though I think the subject is religion. We'll see.

In Space, No one can hear you scream

Same goes for Suburbia.

Don't you love New York in the fall? It makes me want to buy school supplies.

Do you ever get the feeling that the universe is trying to tell you something, and for once you actually think you may be getting the message? All week I've been told, by various people and for various reasons that if you want something, I mean really want it, then you will get it if you are also willing to fight for it. Kind of a "well, Duh" moment. I just think it's an odd coincidence to hear it from about four different places that have no connection what so ever to each other in the span of two days.
Now i just have to figure out whether the Universe would take time out of it's busy schedule to talk to me personally.
Yeah, I don't think so.
Anyway, It's finally autumn, probably my favorite time of year. It's getting chilly, the holidays are coming starting with Halloween then right down the slippery slope stopping at New Years. The only problem is that once New Year's is over there is not an interesting thing until March at the earliest. Maybe it will snow this year. The funny thing is that my mom is terribly practical and saying that the chill in the air will only bring ice and snow, making it difficult, even dangerous, to drive. My mom is so much fun.
On one final note, to chocolate lovers everywhere, I share this thought: It's not your fault!

I Feel the need, The need for speed

Washington drivers are the worst drivers I have ever had the misfortune to come across. I never thought that i would live to see the day where I would actually appreciate the insanity that is 695, but i do. Here and now. Holy crap, I was driving in Bethesda, to get gas, and I pulled onto a little side street with three way traffic light. The other two lanes of traffic were stopped. And the drivers in these lanes (they were not behind me, and my decision to go or not go did not affect them) began honking their horns at me to go already. The kicker is that the light was STILL RED! ARGH!
Another time, a truck must have been trying to get in my lane, and I was driving the same speed as him, so I was not getting out of his way (mind you, I didn't notice any turn signal, but that does not necessarily mean that there was none. Anyway, the Truck driver decided to slow down, pull behind me, pass me on the right, and then pull in front of me. At least he didn't cut me off too close.
Washington is so much more pleasant if you are on the metro.
Now you may ask, what the hell I was doing in the 52 state. I was at a job interview with a company I will never work for. And I am ok with that. Actually the job was in Tyson's Corner, Virgina (the 10th State). But really, that is neither here nor there.
Today I have another interview with an advertising company. Maybe it will go better.
